I'm restoring an old World War 1 bayonet, about 10" long. How much would it cost to have the blade re-chromed?

Upon further investigation, it turns out to be pre-WW1

I doubt it would ever have been chromed! If its rusty try soaking it over night in cheap coke (keep it off the 'handle' if wetness would damage it though, you could put it in a basin and wrap it in coke soaked paper maybe. You may find if you are planning on selling it that it is better not to clean it up - some collectors prefer the original as it is. But coke will get off rust - its got phosphoric acid in it and blacksmiths use this to clean up their metal

In the present economic situation it is imperative to get the most you can for your online dollars. So there is no rationale to pay too much for when there are actually tons of them now available on eBay. Plus, eBay is among the largest and most trusted online shopping sites across the world. This website is approved by eBay to make it easier to get the that you are seeking and exhibit them to you. If you can not observe the hunting for below.
